This one is a different version of the one I shared during my “12 blocks for Xmas” KAL, and needs your full attention to avoid mistakes.
You can add this pattern to your Ravelry library by clicking HERE.
Remember that, in case you need more patterns to add to this project, I adapted all patterns from my “12 Blocks for Xmas” blanket to the same number of stitches and rows than the “52 Square Pickup” ones. You can find them HERE.

– CO 43 sts with US 7 (4.5 mm) needles.
|I always cast on and bind off stitches with larger needles than I use for the main work. This prevent my cast on and bind off rows from being too tight.|
– With US 6 (4 mm) needles, knit 4 rows.
|Slip first stitch on every row as if you were to knit it, but without knitting it (except on the first row). It will form a neat and sturdy border.|
– Continue working as follows:
4 garter sts, BASKETWEAVE pattern over 35 sts, 4 garter sts until you have a total length of 8’’ (20.5 cm).
I knitted 13 times the BASKETWEAVE pattern complete + rows 1) to 3) again.
– Knit 4 rows.
– Bind off with US 7 (4.5 mm) needle. Cut yarn and weave in ends.
k all sts, all rows.
(Over a multiple of 10 sts. I added 5 more st to reach the needed 35.)
